Glasgow

George Square at Christmas. This is the best time to come to Glasgow as it is all bright and colourful in George Square. There is a also a skating rink set up at Christmas it costs 3 pounds to get in for 1 hour.

Ice Rink in George Square at Christmas

I was in George Square with my friend last year. We went skating...it was a bit wet but it was really good!

This is Buchanan Street. It has lots of shops and cafes. Some of the shops are called :
~ Borders Bookshop
~ Habitat (furniture store)
~ Foot Locker

I was here just before i left Scotland to come to Australia. The shops are great! I would recommend to have 2 days at the shops while visiting Glasgow.

Shopping centres/ streets to cover:
~ Buchanan Galleries
~ Arygle Street
~ Sauchalle Street

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:People are helpful and friendly, excellent choice of shops to choose from, George Square in Winter and Summer
  • Cons:Rains a lot, have a jacket ready
  • In a nutshell:MORE THAN JUST BAGPIPES AND HAGGIS!!
